This remote and scenic area on the California-Nevada border consists mainly of jeep trails and fire roads surrounding a large dormant sulfur mine (off-limits). The area offers some primitive campsites, but no clearly designated staging areas or services. You will find about fifteen miles of scenic views of the high-desert forests and mountain ranges along the main road with just a handful of decent side trails. A long rocky jeep trail with many stream crossings (caution – some over 1 foot deep.) is located in the northwest area. You will not find much exciting terrain here overall, but at least you’ll have the whole place to yourself.
